Hi I'm Diane

I love to read, sew and travel. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have four children. I returned to school after having my family to obtain my degree in Clothing and Textiles; I graduated from BYU in 2000. I currently work at BYU and love working with students. I have sewn historical clothing for the Church but now focus my skills on sewing for my grandchildren. I love to read almost any genre but historical fiction is my favorite. I also love to travel.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of the church because it's teachings are true. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know He lives and am grateful for the sacrifice of His life for me so I can return to live with Him again if I am faithful. I know He loves me and always answers my prayers. I love the Book of Mormon and I know that it is another witness of Jesus Christ when he visited the American continent. I know that the Book of Mormon was translated by the gift and power of God by Joseph Smith and it was written for our day. I love the feeling I get when I read the Book of Mormon and I know it is true. I am grateful to have been married in the temple and I know that I will be with my family forever through the sealing power of the priesthood which was restored. I am also grateful that my husband holds the priesthood to lead and bless our family. I know our church is led by a prophet who has been called by God to lead and guide our church through revelation. I choose to be a member of the church because being a member makes me happy.

How I live my faith

My husband I teach Sunday School to the youth ages 18-30. We are currently teaching about the New Testament. We take turns teaching the lesson and appreciate the opportunity to serve. We are responsible for not only teaching them but keeping track of the ones that attend elsewhere or who are not attending. I also visit two sisters monthly with a companion. One of the women we visit is in her late 70's and she loves to have us come visit her; the other one is a young mother in her late 30's with 6 children and is very busy. While these women are in different stages of life than I am, both appreciate us bringing them a message about the gospel and bearing testimony to them. We have developed a good friendship with these women as we make sure they are well and help them when we see a need.
